Bradenton man accused of impregnating 12-year-old

A Bradenton man is accused of impregnating a 12-year-old girl.
Zachrey McDowell, 31, had sex with the girl multiple times between April 1 and June 18, according to law enforcement.
The girl learned she was pregnant July 2 after going Manatee County Memorial Hospital for a bladder infection, according to law enforcement. The girl alleged she had sex with McDowell, whom she met on Facebook after he sent her a friend request, about 10 times.
Law enforcement said the girl reported that she told McDowell she was older than 12 but younger than 18.
Law enforcement said it found a message the girl sent McDowell on Facebook informing him she was pregnant and he responded by asking whom she’d told and adding he hoped she told nobody.
